@ . . . . I have attached images from my three latest observing sessions, which have taken some time to process..
All were taken with the Pixcel 237 CCD and 30cm Schmidt-Cass operating at f34. A variety of filters were used, including IR, Methane, UV, and RGB. Details are noted on the images.
Most images were taken in the medium resolution mode, binned 2x2, yielding 14.8u pixels. I had some luck imaging in hi-res mode (7.4u pixels) and the hi res images are attached as seperate files. Each IR image is the average of some 3 to 6 seperate images and the UV and Methane images were obtained by co-adding 5-6 seperate exposures. The IR images taken November 04 and 07 are among the most detailed I think I have ever obtained. Of interest is the November 7 image which shows a dark feature crossing the red spot, and the inset shows a contrast enhanced cropped image of the area around the red spot.
Camera control and image calibration via Maxim CCD. Calibrated images were averaged and de-convolved using maximum entropy. These images were then unsharp masked and brightness/contrast adjusted. I welcome any questions or comments on these, especially the November 7 red spot image.
